  • Scream Factory Reveals Features, Release Date for 2-Disc “RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD” Blu-ray!

    ,

    An ’80s zombie movie that features bumbling supply warehouse employees, punk rock teenagers, a selfless coroner, a nude striptease, meta-humor, buckets of blood and a skeletal corpse kept together by corroded flesh; there simply isn’t anything like RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. While the film remains a fan favorite for many, who’ve collected posters, soundtracks and any home video release available, some were unsure if Scream Factory’s upcoming RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD Blu-ray would be worth double dipping on the existing Blu release. Of course, Scream Factory put all worries to bed earlier today, as they’ve announced the full contents and cover art for their RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD HD reissue!

  • WGN Slates “SALEM” Season Three for Halloween Debut; First Teaser Revealed!

    ,

    After the second stellar season and the show’s San Diego Comic Con renewal, this writer has been excited to see what’s next for the third season of WGN America’s SALEM. While the show had previously air in the spring, the lack of news or promotional material spoke otherwise, and with several character’s left knocking at death’s door, no one was quite sure what would become of the fright series. Yet today, WGN has announced that SALEM will be debuting alongside the likes of THE WALKING DEAD, AMERICAN HORROR STORY and ASH VS. EVIL DEAD this fall, cementing in a Halloween week premiere date and unleashing the first teaser for the upcoming season!

  • Deaditorial: Negan, The Governor and “THE WALKING DEAD”‘s Villain Problem

    ,,

    THE WALKING DEAD set the stage for perhaps one of the most devastating episodes of horror television to date. Maggie, one of the most sympathetic characters of the show, was near death, with a pregnancy complication jeopardizing the lives of herself and her unborn child. The otherwise confident, selfless leader that is Rick Grimes was left a sweaty, shaken mess, humbled and emotionally compromised by an underestimated force. And almost every character had a “two days ‘till retirement” moment that would make their death bittersweet: Eugene’s Map, Abraham and Sascha’s decision to settle down, Carl’s armory chat with Enid, etc.

  • “THE HALLOW” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Back when this writer first experienced Corin Hardy’s THE HALLOW at the sorely-missed Stanley Film Festival, I felt as if I was in the midst of seeing a striking, master-class genre filmmaker on the rise. The careful twist on genre tropes, the engaging visual style, the inclusion of Irish mythology and the undeniably phenomenal marriage of practical and digital effects all pointed to one of the most promising feature debuts in recent memory, reminiscent of such contemporary horror masters Guillermo del Toro and Neil Marshall. Yet while the film picked up critical acclaim in its limited release via IFC Midnight last year, this writer hopes that Scream Factory’s new impressive new Blu-ray release will give horrorheads the monstrous goodness in stunning 1080p High Definition.

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Horror Movies That Deserved A Sequel!

    ,,

    When it comes to sequels, the horror genre can be a fairly mucky playground. On one hand, you have fright films with fantastic follow-ups, whether it be ALIENS, WRONG TURN 2 or HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II. On the other hand, you have the myriad indirect sequels that were churned out by rights-holders to make a quick buck; does anyone remember the sequels to AMERICAN PSYCHO, ROSEMARY’S BABY or CARRIE? And then there are the horror offerings that, for either commercial or logistical reasons, never received the sequel they truly deserved, and likely won’t ever will. So for this week’s Dreadful Ten, FANGORIA offers up ten macabre movies that deserved a frightening follow-up!

  • First Details, Poster: Jessica Cameron’s Psychothriller “AN ENDING”

    ,

    If you’re a tried-and-true horror fan, you likely know the name of Jessica Cameron. Whether it’s from her turns in CAMEL SPIDERS and SILENT NIGHT to her directorial efforts TRUTH OR DARE and MANIA or her persistent presence at horror conventions and festivals worldwide, Cameron has made a name for herself in the D.I.Y. horror community, even going as far as to be featured on FANGORIA’s SPLAT CHAT. Yet while audiences await for TRUTH OR DARE and MANIA’s general release, Cameron is already hard at work on her newly-announced film, AN ENDING!

  • Found Footage… For Real: Vintage “EVIL DEAD” Behind-The-Scenes Footage!

    ,,

    It might be a cliche, but there’s something magical about homemade horror filmmaking. Personally speaking, I remember running around a campground for a Video 101 assignment, camcorder in tow, filming a faux trailer for a serial killer thriller with nothing but whoever and whatever I could assemble on a Friday night in the middle of winter. And while that stupid, stupid movie has been lost in time, I’ll never forget how exhilarating and fun the process was, and how much that memory still stands out nearly seven years later.

  • Stephen King’s “CELL” joins “31” at Saban Films

    ,

    Over the past year, the distribution game has changed rather radically in the independent film world. While studios devote more and more resources to blockbusters and tentpole films, smaller distributors with more radical release strategies have found solid footing by betting on the strength of their output. Entities such as STX and A24 have established their reputation with releases such as THE WITCH, THE GIFT and GREEN ROOM, and now, Saban Films looks to join them with a growing genre slate that includes Rob Zombie’s 31 and now, as per The Hollywood Reporter, Tod William’s adaptation of Stephen King’s CELL.

  • “THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    As much sense as it may make to a marketing executive or producer, having the name of a horror icon attached to your film is actually somewhat of a risky proposition. By associating a film with someone who is known and beloved by genre films, expectations will understandably be raised, which could work as a double-edged sword if those standards are not met. And in the case of Nick Simon’s THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, having that attachment be the final credit in the prolific career of Wes Craven (who served as executive producer) is an even larger shadow to shine through in the eyes of horror enthusiasts.
